Rajapaksa Security Withdrawal: One Injured As MPs Clash In Parliament

MahindaParliament turned into a mini battle field this afternoon, after Government and Joint Opposition Parliamentarians clashed over the withdrawal of military security of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

The clash resulted in several MPs receiving injuries, while UNP MP Sandith Samarasinghe was rushed to the Accident Service after sustaining injuries, and Speaker Karu Jayasuriya suspending Parliament for 5 minutes due to the tense situation, which erupted as Minister Sarath Fonseka made a speech in parliament over the withdrawal of Rajapaksa’s security. Later, Jayasuriya postponed the Parliamentary sessions for tomorrow.

The military security provided to Rajapaksa was withdrawn yesterday, and replaced with police personnel. Before the withdrawal, Rajapaksa had a security detail of 102 personnel, which included five Army Majors and 45 Commandos.

    Whole country is being held to ransom by Coconut Thieves Collective and their thugs in Parliament.

    How come nobody is thrown out of the chamber and punished by the Speaker ever?For shouting in obscene language, while another member speaks in Parliament?

    Why aren’t members who run amok like wild animals and assault others dragged out like any other criminal? Then severely and swiftly punished. WHY NOT? WHY?

    Why do taxpayers maintain these people, when their behaviour is worse than that of wild monkeys in Wilpattu?

    May I remind we even give them free massages inside the Parliament itself. Did you know that? Yes. You read me right.

    All that to embarrass our country like this? Why do we tolerate this as a nation? WHY?

    Cheers!

    PS:
    Have you heard of any other country, where a disgracefully defeated Head of State sucks so much time, energy and treasure from that nation?

    This guy is truly the “Sore Loser in Chief”!

    Expedite all criminal cases against MP4K Mr. Rajapassa, his family, his cronies and henchmen. Put them behind bars. If your intentions are honorable & you have no fear. SHOW ME THE MONEY!

      The problem, Emil, is that we are a democracy the Fifth Column is trying to undermine from their hidden quarters.

        Tentacle, your assertion is incorrect.

        There are many democracies in the world who don’t tolerate such nonsense. This is a clear reflection of ourselves as a people. We are utterly ill-behaved.

        Let us start correcting ourselves. For a start, let us STOP this drivel we so often talk about our 2500 year old culture.

        I don’t think most of us understand what culture or cultured behavior is.

          Justice & Fairplay, You are so Right.:-
          ” For a start, let us STOP this drivel we so often talk about our 2500 year old culture.”

          The ‘Culture’ according to the Mahavamsa, of Which We are so Proud, started with the arrival of Vijaya and His 200 Followers who were banished from His North Indian Motherland for Disorderly Behaviour.

          The Scene shown on Rupavahini, of the Fracas that took place in Parliament on Wednesday, describes accurately our ‘2500 year old Culture’ starting with the arrival of Vijaya!

      Hey guys, there is a common saying among lankens “Aba kewa minihage molaya daniy ” … that is the reason why MR predicts that he himself, Namal and other men who are smeared with high layers of extrements to be ready to be arrested. Wimals smear coating is much larger than those of other men – street boy would have been enjoyed longer, had his god father got reelected. But today he seems to have no chances with his calculated destiny.

      Now with all the Panama and other investigations are initiated, those who had invovled should feel themselves, even if they are free today, once the cases are investigated, they would have no chance- have to be surrended before the law.

      All gon talks will find its ends sooner than later like a glass wall would snaps. I have no doubt, FCID and other brave men would be smart enough to do their best to find out everything about the billions alleged to have kept away from Srilanken with direct mediaton of Meeharaka Rajaakshe. Ab kewa minihage mole daniy..that is the other saying fits most.

      One way tickets to the jail sessions being issued to all high criminals will no doubt bring them to sense -until then like crabs in hot water, they may behave..
      God is on the side of fairness -is what my mother whispered to me whenever we experienced UNFAIRNESS, INJUSTICE being repeated in this country.

      In total agreement with Ben… WHY are these fellows not arrested and kicked out of Parliament for misbehavior??? This also shows they don’t deserve any security at all!!!! Come on President and PM – show them WHO is BOSS please!!!!!!!!!

      who is behind all these men go naked in parliament if not Rajaakshe ?

      That reflect his realt nature. People of this country still mile away from real face of Rajaakshes. For him selfishness is above everything. Else, 70 year old man to stay in politics this way after having governed two terms is not becasue of the his so called supported requested by lanken folks, but his greedines.
      Please FCID or other bodies, earlier is better, we cant see this man led ALIBABA and 40 THIEVES take ground this way – please remove these men out of sight – then we have more energies to contibute for the country s productivity which is to be focused above everything if the country to be taken forward.

        Actually, today, we see, a PM is in the coutnry acting like a PM…

        was this the case under MAHINDA RAJAKASHE. There that man DM JAYARATNE was seen as NOBODY…

        here the people should see it right today, PM led cabinet ministers are in function… this is not a joke, but a greater difference with that of the previous regime.

        I agree with current president insisting that current ones are only on good deeds, but none of them go to the village level- since they dont talk about them…

        Today, there are no families to run the active politics.. but almost everyone is subjected to criticisms… see today, they question PMs question times.

        I as once living out of COUNTRY, being on the west, see GRETER CHANGE…

        The progress being made .. today is no means comparable to any other regimes we had sofar since Indepenndece… role model…

        10000000000000000000000000000 times more democractic than had been in the past.

      Ben,

      To all your ‘WHY’ questions the answer is quite simple really.

      Because this is Sri Lanka, the Sinhala Buddhist nation, thrice blessed and the wonder of Asia.

      All politicians of all hues are millstones around all easily duped Sri Lankan voters.

      I think if Sarath Fonseka is given just 15 PCs only for his protection….

      50 or less than that would be more than enough to give the proection to MR.
      why ?

      a) Field Marshal Fonseka is the first enemy for any LTTERs … since he is the one who mastered the war against Ltters and defeated them.. even if the politicla leadership ate the entire cake not sharing to the due…..

      b) If significant punnkku eating men and women still believe, MR to be godded… just to calm them until sensing – it is worth to settle this issue iwth giving some 50 or less than the amount being deplo<ed for the former army commander…

      That we all the 156 can be released and subject to normal salary…

      The saveed funds this way, can be useful to save the villagers from being killed by WILD elephants.. daily.. Those people have no help at all.. and Rajarata people .. whose young being caught by UKKD….. please … heavens sake be thoughtful …. DEWIYANE:… I am saddened not being able to do the due for the latter.. but wehave been raising funds to help them with… soon we will come back to srilanka and help those poor.. at least providing them with dialiyse equipments.

      Ben, it was one of the most disgusting and shocking episodes ever seen inside parliament. It could not have been worse.

      The complete lack of control shown by the Speaker was also shocking. I think this speaker is a very weak one. He needs to go.

      Please have a look at parliamentary sessions in the UK and the manner in which EVERYONE respects the speaker’s verdict. We are a million years away from getting there, and we need to show concern.

      It is my belief that we – as citizens – have the right to demand that these people in Vavula suits and “national dress” behave themselves before trying to legislate on our behalf.

      I fully agree; we should not tolerate this kind of behavior from those in parliament. They got no style, no decorum, no decency. They got to go. They have NO PLACE in the new Sri Lanka we need to build.

      Coming colour is no good for Rajaakshes and Joint OPPOSITION:

      Former MP Sajin de Vass Gunawardena challenged Pivithuru Hela Urumaya General Secretary Udaya Gammanpila for an open debate on who caused the defeat of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

      He made this challenge yesterday, giving a statement at his office in Balapitiya.

      Sajin de Vass Gunawardena said that the best way to answer various accusations by Gammanpila against him was to debate them openly in a live TV debate.

      Meanwhile, he maintained that he was fully cooperating with investigations on allegations against him.

      I miss my mother, I also miss Late Rev. SObitha thero.

      At the time, police was about to arrest MaRA drug dealing kin pins in negombo- MARA dared to abuse state helicopter and immediately turned up in negambo abusing his excutive powers… blocked Lanza from being arrested.

      In the same manner, today, just today, Babaric Manawadu is visited by Meeharaka Rajakashe to pay his tribute… can you imagine. This man Manawadu is punished by nature – for god decided, his actions taken against his fomrer colleague SF was beyond all ethics and morals. COME AROUND GO AROUND… dittadammawedaniya took the life of Manawadu.. even if any lawful bodies failed to capture the man. This is what we called- truth wins.. … even if that lags….

      In the same manner, now Sajin is spilling the bean.

      His reveals can be really dangerous for MR led all the frauds.

    High time MY3/Ranil takes charge of things, otherwise these ugly scenes might spill over to the streets.

    These MARA PALANAYA MP’s know only the path of their MASTER CHANDI MARA.

    If this is not nipped in the bud, things might take an ugly turn. It is no secret that MARA was using his contingent of security for his clandestine activities and political works too and that need to stop.

    This is in no way, compromising his security, 50 Nos is more than enough. I am not sure whether President of US has this number of personal security.

    No none means any harm to this Monster, but he needs to be curtailed for trying to destabilize the country and trying to bring back his MARA PALANAYA.

    His security issue is being used as a guise to destabilize and bring carnage to the country, starting from his MARA MP’s.

          Champika Ranawaka is a hero to have sent MR regime home.

          Not sure, he was alleged to have made that accident, but compared to the much service given by him, that is jus tnothing. Rascal boy coming from an RICH KID class had hit his bike on th ebackside of the jeep of the CR. That can no means be his mistake even if Ranawaka was the driver. JO men- that are the thugs being those motorists, have spread lies mostlikly to get paid for them. Hardly believe taht CR may ever have hit and run … he is a backborne person by every means.

            Champuka is a downright racist and a bigot, and that is why we think he is unsuitable to be a leader in a multi cultural country like SL. He can never be trusted to act in a just and fair manner to all communities.

        This is a long process Hamlet nangi – son long the people are that vulnerable to rice packets and the monies being distributed by Basil, they the hungry folks would not turn their mind sets that easily. Above all they should eat and live the day. In a country every at least I/4 of population live as under poverty similar to africa, but politicians fo rtheir surivival make incorrect statements, what cant happen…. their struggle is not right or wrong but to live or die. Please see it right…. I think the rulers should focus those under poverty than anythign else … we dont need luxuary in urban areas – we must not send rockets… we need the majority srilankens to feel that they cover their 3 meals first.

    These acts prove again – how devious Rajaakshe men when it goes for their gains.

    Be it per Forces or STF police, if the protection is safegaurded, why they have to reac this way. Besides, world woul dnot respect going thorugh standards, that former leader is given a set of soldiers neglecting prevailing laws. And the facts that incumbent president and PM are not guarded by FORCES.. so why should then former leader to be kept in altar ?

    For all the sums he allowed those culprits should be gotten back by all the proper investigations. Those men in parliaments should be subjected to code of ethics…. they the men have sofar turned the parliament a lowest place. All these men are supportive to former leader. That gives a better character certficate about former leader. Born rascal andlives like a rascal.

    FCID please speed up your investigations so that we can put allthe bunch in dark soon. That Jonesten Fernando is a proved thugs before TV watchers. His behaviours have proved us all how violent this men could become.

        in a country where almost every 2nd is corurpted, highly corrupted, you cant be wihtout them. People s power consists of roudys, rascals, goodies and all… all thse should be tamed by law prevailing in the country… but MR did roudies to take ground and destroyed the goodies,.. though it should be other way around…

        See how decent the current Duo have been. Are they that violent ? NO::: do they sseek any wrong paths to achieve getting their pockets filled…
        not to that extent but to some significant degree they have set asterity measures… not like greeks but more like tiger countries…
        As president MY3 makes it clear we need to walk inthe same roads filled with all the pot holes if we have to repair it in the end.
        You can go on licking the balls of Rajapaksehs, but we would not. We would also help you the like sensing the harm done by bugger et al – by bringing you guys to sense. God bless/Bs.

        Is Premadjaanyantha worst than Buruwanse ?

        Is Abengunawardhana form Matara worst than Buruwasne ?

        All high criminals remained to lick the balls of MR…. they have got the files being investigated by FCID. all others will follow them with the time.

        Have the people attended in LACKS to the Kirulapana, today, MR led violent groups would have destroyed the nation.

        But decent folks led by MY3 dont behave so. That is where you have to rethink SRINATH the man in late 60ties.

    @Samuel Jayaweera How can you compare the present president and PM equal with the leader who eradicated LTTE? Are you a baby to not to understand the difference? LTTE is out there to take revenge by harming or killing the ex-president. The current president and PM are the bootlickers of the LTTE and their agents. The whole world knows that. So taking away special army protection provided to ex president cannot be substantiated by any means. Just because you don’t like ex-president doesn’t count in this argument. Can it be?

      Fully agree with Geetha,

      Whether one likes the former President or not, curtailing the security arrangements for him is a big mistake. If he is harmed, the present government could be burdened by massive, unmanageable violent reprisals. That could lead to military intervention to restore law and order or,to foreign intervention. Who will take the responsibility for this decision now or,should the former President is harmed?

        You may go and make and appointemt with the lady – you both need to have sort awarness programs to see it real. Had the so called leader been that unique, and the very same to have failed in all means inthe POST war session – are not paradoxal ? It should just have been a like tossiing a coin….. to have won the war right ? And this man had no special abilities shown in his previous tenures in lanken politics. Basta.. that are the facts.
        That reflected the manner he managed all the funds in post war sessions. His ego polishing was above everyhing.

        There are a larger portion in the country representing Geetha and Lal… the reason is notign else, MR media men did the job for making them ever blind – THERE lanken artists also did their part… That Jackson anthoony was the most abusive man to have brainwashed Lals and GEETHAS.

      If you the geetha we know as having a mouth piece similar to a bed pan being used by Swiss nationals – I am no worried of your remarks. She has not the least education to be a politicians – but MR allowed even condom testers to become MPs and Ministers during his office.

      To tell you the truth, if as you say, MR led the war to success, he should be given the due place, but he must not be allowed to use it as as licence to mistreat own folks including opposition and everyone.

      First I dont think that he was that intelligent to win the war, but it was a all or not process.. there he decided to be firm.. that is what civil organisation and other parties stood by expected from him: So in that context, he is just an another to have supported the war against LTTERs. And not forgetting we had this war not born 2005 but for the last 30 years or so – the magician was a part of the lanken politics enjoying higher positions, ….. do you guys ever hear anything him to be reagrded as special prior to 2005 ? In terms of brinign or working for ending the war ? No….
      Please go and check your knowledge… it was collectivity succeeded the war. Not leadership… I have no doubt about that today, having lived in the west for long.. and having seeing the way LTTERs became that week towards 2009. Their political power collapesd as a glass snapped to pieces – then with many leaders getting killed, they became wearker and weaker…. SF the field marshal impartially can share you the statistics… togethe with the brave forces to clear your thoughts.
      But surely, lanken media subuejcted to Rajakshe censor.. painted the picture as Japanese made it after the NUCLEAR DISASTAER they experienced few years ago. Within EU we didnot hear the gravity of harm being made by RADIATION following that distastaer…
      Likewise, MEDIA men totally controlled by Rajaakshe, even today, some of them are in proactive everywhere… painted the picture making you and the most vulnerable peromamently blind and deaf. Latter is easy where the states are similar to Northkoreans and former Gadafi run Lybia. So more than this I must not share you.: Please read and clear your thoughts accordingly. Self study can help you getting to the right track my dear Geetha.

        What a typical UNP fool.
        Before talking about unknown areas to you like SL’s war effort to rid herself from 30 years of terrorism first try to act decent and have some respect for women. I know decency is something one gets from their upbringing as a child at home and their social surrounding at least act decent and with respect to women as another human being at least in a forum like this.
        Geetha is an MP chosen by the people in her area and their legitimate parliamentary representative. She lost in 2010 and worked for the constituency and people selected her in 2015. What sort of man are you to call her a bed pan used by Swiss nationals? Was your mother a one? Is being married to a Swiss national is equal to that? Dogs should sh1t inside your mouth.
        UNP is the party that has had most number of actresses. Paba came to parliament through UNP, Rosy came from UNP (I see nothing wrong in it) and why is it specially wrong of Geetha to come to parliament? Is every female MP a some sort of a sexual object to you? If I can see you I will slap you with my sereppu.
        And for your knowledge who the hell is Ranjan, one of the most stupid MPs around? A male prostitute?
        And again, Mahinda showed his leadership and intelligence by winning a ‘losing war’. RW did everything advantageous to LTTE and took every step inimical to Sri Lanka’s war effort.

      For me MR is just no better to a butcher. His knowledge is also so low.. just compare MY3 s speeches and those of MR. Like SKY earth differences.

      MR s and Wimal Buruanses are almost similar. They fall to the lower level sinhala rhetorics animating LALs and GEETHAS.. who are the majority of the cross section of developing nation. They are the most vulnerable native folks that would let anyone lke MR et to manipulate.

      Just a challenge to MR – now with him being the most senior – why not the guy cant be busy with saving those POOR folks being damaged/injured /killed by Elephants yearly. These can clean his soul – by helping real way.. nto being busy with JOINT opposition parasites.
      What has he been doing round the clock surrouned by 256 personel, if he cant do the due for the sake of the poor inthis country.

      Bill Cliniton and other good politicians in the US even today do their best towards the poor globally. Instead of crying for own selfish agendas, Rajakashe should use his knoweldge to help the poor who are the majority over 40% in the hungry nation.

      Sure, we cant compare him with current duo.
      Both current men are highly sensible and cultured/civlized/down to earth.
      Recent focus:
      1)JO issue with Media secretary -PM waited did not weeks to order him to work in compliance

      In MR days, Mervin tied a man to a tree post but and in the aftermath they enjoyed it as some paksitani-illiterate do in their traditional teasing events…

      2) IGP police has suspended MEDIA unit of the police – restructuring it for good – IGP is sensible knowing that news could harm all if they are not subject to discussions prior to add air

      Your god father is a pompous person – with a criminal record comparable to no other – to have been kept on altar by liars, thugs, criminals,show off artists, drug kin pins, media men working for criminals, srialnken airline user thinking it was his taxi, creating all kind of vaccumm in lanken econonmy not even done the due for immaturaly dying lanken folks in Rajarata by unknown Kidney disease.

      MY3 deserves respect to have banned Glyphosat – round up wihch is one of key factors believed to have caused those UKNKD. He MR spent billions for his prestige and survival while sending poor folks

      Not Ltters but those hang with him :: one is said to be that Jonsten Fernando or like most known rascal – and other men that MR sat during his high days – will surelly take on revenge… else, average folks representative would take revenge on him… Dont put the blame on LTTERs… there are no longer there according to your god father himself. We can talk from both orifices as it is favourable to us – just be real and get the facts right.

      “How can you compare the present president and PM equal with the leader who eradicated LTTE?”

      It is interesting to note that “The Leader” eradicated LTTE. Actually it was VP “The Leader” who destroyed LTTE.

      Remember VP won the first election for the Leader.

      In case if you were still in the cradle when LTTE was obliterated, sucking your thumb, now is the time for you to know it was RW who did all the ground work and the Hindians who decided to finish off their own creation.

      Don’t forget Hindians provided everything from A to Z for the war effort, except lethal weapons.

      “LTTE is out there to take revenge by harming or killing the ex-president.”

      We were assured by “The Leader” and his sibling they had completely wiped out LTTE. Now what is the much ado about nothing?

      In case you forgot, Sirisena also had acted as defense minister during The Leaders absence.

      The Leader who denigrated UN in the past has now turned to it for protection. What a hypocrite The Leader is?

      Go back to your cot and start sucking your thumb.

      Please stop kidding.

        Dear Native,

        There are three sources which are hell bent on bumping off the ex Leader.

        And they will act through a third party of course, if the opportunity arises.

        Then there are three others who wish the ex president is bumped off or run over by a bus.

        But they wouldn’t want to have any detectable association, because it will finish them off too, as far as their Political carriers as well as their off springs carriers are concerned.

        Someone said in a comment the other day that you are like a sage..

        So I will leave it to you to work it out while having a Red label.instead of sucking the thumb.

    Everyone, except the dumbo’s who have commented above,knows the former president Mahinda Rajapakse has a threat from the tiger rump or even the ‘RAW’ could pose as tiger rump to harm the former president.
    Wherther it is the Army or the Police that provide the security to the former president it is we the people who foot the bill and pacha sira has no bloody business to put the life of the former president in danger.
    They tried to cast him out of politics through their lies and now fsiled in that they are trying to eliminate him altogether.

      There is no threat for Old King from anybody. There is no need for him unwanted security. It will be a big inconvenience for the people wherever he goes with that kind of entourage. But this incident is an explicit call even the parliament needs additional protection from these Gang members of the Joint opposition.

    Yes ! Prime Minister

    You Promised to the people after winning and took hold of the Government that you will run the country similar to Westminster Model of Democratic Parliament.

    Is that the reason you allow all these idiotic behaviours in the Parliament ??
    Has anyone heard of this kind of Anarchy in the Parliament at Westminster ?? Certainly just the opposite.

    Does not the Speaker has the Authority to stop this Crap? In the Srilankan Parliament?
    Has it this kind of behaviour by the MARA group becoming too much to handle??

    What is this Government ?? Have they become the Puppets and Pussy Cats unable to control the Thugs in the Parliament??

    I noticed that several people mentioning that it was not MR but the army under the leadership of SF defeated the LTTE terrorists. It is true that MR did not go to the battle field with a AK 47. The army and Sarath Fonseka were there when JRJ was the President, when Premadasa was the President, when Ranil was the PM, when Chandrika was the President but could not defeat the LTTE terrorists. I have no idea how he did it but the fact is that MR managed not only to defeat the LTTE terrorists but even to eliminate Prabhakaran who is responsible for killing thousands of innocent men, women and children and the members of the armed forces despite the pressure exerted on him to spare his life. There were Pandits from Western countries who kept on saying that LTTE is so strong that it cannot be defeated using military means. But MR proved that they were wrong.

    Also there are some who say that crushing LTTE is a result of collective effort and therefore should not give the credit to MR. Some say civil societies forced him to take action. There is a saying ‘You can take the horse to water but you cannot force the horse to drink water’. I am sure the pressure was there even to other Presidents and PMs to end the war but they failed to do that.

    I hear MY3 keeps on saying that I risked my life and left the government to contest as the Common Candidate. And there are people who praise him for taking that bold decision. I say MR not only risked his life but risked the lives of his whole family when he took the bold decision to crush LTTE. Those who say that now there is peace and no threat to his life have no idea about the ground realities.

    I have no problem taking MR to task if he has looted the country. If we are doing that ‘Choura Regina’ also should be taken to task. Victor Ivon has very vividly explained how she looted my country. I am also curious why these people who try to create this image that MR is ‘Hora’ do not talk about the film ‘Great Bank Robbery’ in which the main actors are Ponil, Rakaru and Arjun. People should make noise about this more than other things because this happened under the name ‘Yaha Palanaya’ that promised to eradicate corruption. MR eradicated terrorism but these guys cannot tackle even a simpler thing than that. NATO (No Action Talk Only). MY3 talk only. Oh! sorry. He said he will take tough action and he did. Removing the army personnel that was assigned to provide security to MR. Really that is a bold decision and we should give credit for that to MY3.

      This sky earth difference. If you trust VICTOR iwan – then good luck to you. Very same man stayed as if he was fed with Clay during the all levels of abuses were high under Rajapakshe. Golden Thero of nation, sobitha was in the view, what have been doing in srialnka ? He had never been that thoughtful for the entire decades since independence. What are u talking man ? If CBK did not save the bum of the nation, by nominating MY3 to chase away the bugger, we would still have been abused by MR led thugs. Was that you thought right ? What and idiotic lanken citizen ?
      Today, all is becoming clear the gravity of the coruption that MR adminstration caused, by deliberate manner. Bunch of thugs are born to steal was the statement issued by former CJ… he regreted to have given a false convition which was … Tsunami embzhelment was not done by MR.

      Man open your eyes if we had free media all teh forces led by SF would have set all the accurate views about the war. :::: But media men were abducted and tortured as no other leaders did.. even after effects cause them even today not to be impartial.
      Latter is the reason Media men to have failed to Interview Rajakashe men even today, although mountains of their abuses become even higher day to another.
      Your kind of citizens sadly allowed to loot the nation.
      As one commentator made it clear, for next CRICKET vitories, we should better put the minister of Sports on altar just kicking out the captain of the team… let s do it … to please you the fools. We are ready.. man.. what an idiot you should be.

    Isn’t it true that a certain top war hero got a male journalist abducted, raped and assaulted and left to die? and that journalist fled Sri Lanka and is suffering from PTSD and shame now? Isn’t it true that the Lasantha W assassination was a team effort which involved the same war hero who cannot even get 50,000 votes and it is now that all the dirt except his dirt, is coming out because of the way he was mistreated, accused and jailed? Isn’t it true that he too was not honest? Isn’t it true Sunday Leader published many articles about his extravagant use of state resources to host the daughter’s wedding, make massive numbers of satellite phone calls? and also direct deals to the former son in law? So why are suddenly these people acting like Wessanathara ?

    Any leader, whatever his/her achievement is deemed to an ordinary citizen once he/she rescind all his/her responsibility. A security detail of such person is derived from many variables. But that is not equivalent to the present leaders, whose lives are important to the country’s normal functioning. There is reluctance to accept this from the Old Royal supporters. At the start or the after loss of election, Old King accepted that time Opposition Leader’s Ranil’s assurances of saving him from UN electric Chair and handed him over the Temple Tree House. (Temple Tree house was the President’s residential house that time. Ranil was not the elected prime minister or elected candidate for presidentcy that time. DM was the Prime Minister and New King was the elected Presidential Candidate.) It is customary that past leaders are given elevated level of protection which ordinary citizens do not receive. Lankawe situation is unique. The past leader abandoned his honorary status and acquired a regular M.P. position in the opposition in parliament, though his party is still in power. (It is noticeable, even when UNP was in the Opposition, Dudley did not sit on the oppositions Leader Chair, only because his father had held an honorary place in the country) That is a personal decision he made to berate his importance.(It can also be said as hiding under a camouflage until a new power struggle materialize-An action against the country he served). Then he has to expect downgraded security suitable for the position which he voluntarily undertook – an ordinary M.P. in opposition. Though the predictions are citing the next November, 2016 Presidential election of U.S, as long as a strong government is present in U.S, Old King is unlikely to accept any senior position in the government, including the Opposition Leadership. So far he has been very reluctant to dance quickly to the promoting cronies and have him extradited to a war crime investigation.

    Neither Prime Minister nor the President of the country has accepted the notion of security of leaders is in jeopardy. One has to assume that their decision is coming from the evaluation submitted to them periodically by the defense personnel. If somebody claims that they have better information on the security issues, it is matter for suspicion of their sources and how are they obtaining these superior information.

    The recent arrests of the accused rebels have been not to knowledge of Colombo, because when every time it was questioned they has to check back of the situation and let know the inquirer. If any of these matters raised by the Joint Opposition is real or substantial issue, then the security personnel should have convinced the Colombo leadership about their finding rather than leaking it first to Joint Opposition, then public from them and the government as the last. As per the claims of the Joint Opposition, without Colombo leadership coming to know, the previous regime is getting a premium update of the security situation. This indicate the democratically elected government has a weak point on its own security rather the any past president’s or ministers’ and it is not from any external activities, the threat is coming from the internal security itself.

    The previous government had staged many murders. Some of them are under investigation investigation. Some of them are assured by the current government no to be opened for investigation. The past regime had operated white van and grease monster gangs. It staged Aluthgama, Weliweriya, over and about the mass murders in Mullivaikal and other areas. In addition to all these, the Camp had made ready to launch a coup on the night of Jan 8th. Knowing these, America got involved in to ensure the power change as per the election result, not by coup. The machinery and the frame used to carry these out were not dismantled when the Old King was chased out Temple Tree House. This is the one used put the Gobi Drama in Nedunkerny and forced his wife abort at hospital. As the frame was not weakened by the Yahapalanaya Government, it is mulling to continue where it was let on the January 8th night, the aborted coup.

    When the Yahapalanaya government started to relax the security tightening and let country to return normalcy, this gang grabbed the opportunity and creating tensions. It influenced from the “Suicide Jacket Finding” through TNA member Sivaharan arrest too.

    Internal coups are not completely new to Lankawe. Bandaranayake Murder is part of it. Sirimavo was targeted. Rajiv Gandhi was attempted. Athulathmudali and Kathirgamar are additional cases.

    As this has happened inside of the Parliament, the UNP M.P. is safe now at hospital. But the Government should be alert and should jealously guard it members as another one like this not to happen.

    If your daughter was attacked by a madman on the streets and a man jumps in and saves her, would you then in sheer gratitude to the ‘saviour’,’ let him rape your child? This is what MR did, he ‘saved’ Sri Lanka from a madman by providing political leadership to the war. Are we then, in our gratitude, going to stand by and watch as he and his family plunder and pillage the land he saved and murder, abduct and torture its citizens? NO. Only half- witted imbeciles blinded by hero-worship and shameless servitude will. Those with an iota of intelligence will take an objective view and understand that we must make decisions based on logic and bare facts rather than on slavish loyalty. If we were able to not always be guided by party loyalties and were able to base our decisions on decent behaviour and what’s really good for the country, then we won’t have unholy spectacles like this in our parliament.

      You story is not telling the truth. A rapist’s daughter, a known thief, was deterred by the house owner. But the thieves got together and murdered the owner. Now they are fighting within them for the loot.

      As a matter of fact Yahapalanaya’s thefts are on going while Yahapalanaya wants the other thief protected from local and International law.

      Write the story of JVP time, who was rapist in 1989 and who was the rapist in 1971. As matter of fact you people have been taught by your bible to live a third class life.

      Stephen Don stole the house of poor estate worker and pushed them to road. That is where your Nava-history starts.

    Ranil knew that someone from the JO would ask a question about MR’s security and asked Fonseka to prepare to make a statement and all hell broke loose.

    All this is political games by both sides. There was no reason for the government to remove MR’s security by army but at the same time JO’s claim that some PCs were assigned to MR’s security is bogus. STF is as elite a group as army commandos.

    Only LTTE supporters and sympathizers (or haters who forgot history) would claim that MR is not at risk. MR and Gotha will always be targets for defeating LTTE. I would have added Gen. Fonseka to that list had he not contested the election against MR. So Fonseka, Ranil and My3 are all in “The enemy of my enemy is my friend” category when it comes to LTTE and their supporters. It is the duty of the government to protect MR and Gotha. MR is still immensely popular among masses. Kirulapana rally would show you that. So if anything happens to him, there is a possibility of unrest in the country. That is the last thing Sri Lankans want.

    I Agree fully with Geetha, Lal et al.
    My question: what’s the comparative cost to provide army protection vs STF protection for the Ex-president? If there is no much difference let him have it because that’s what he expects from the country! It is the duty of the current government to protect those who brought in peace to the country by defeating terrorism. This includes Sarath Fonseka and Air and Navy chiefs as well. There is no point in comparing the current president’s security with that of the ex-president. There is no need to argue like kindergarten kids on this matter anymore since Yahapalana leaders should not waste their valuable time and space like they do now in parliament and outside.
    If I were the PM or the Prez I would allow MR to keep his Army security, and I would concentrate my total energy and time on vital national issues that the country is facing now! That’s what the general public expects from the 2 Yahapalana leaders!

    Colombo Rag Daily Mirror quoting the UNP Speaker, says one UNP MP had a black eye after being belted.

    It was so serious that the poor MP had to be admitted to hospital.

    But the fat dude with the big gut, who was lying on the hospital bed surrounded by Journos only had a Neck Brace.

    May be Yahapalanya has found new treatments for our inhabitants.

    Wonder whether UNP Rajitha, the Health Minister who doesn’t trust our Mahavamsa Doctors..has opened this Hospital to train the Daughter in Law.

    By the way Rajitha goes to Mount Sinai to renovate his Ticker with a new Valve at the Yahapalana sucking Taxpayers expense.

    But this poor UNP MP couldn’t get in to Delmon Hospital in Wella Gardens at least, let alone going to Appollo , which the UNP kept alleging that Gota bought from the Hindians.

    President Sira says his mission is to teach the poor inhabitants good , honest manners and act like his sponsors in the West.

    If Gotha is also a targeted one who is providing him security as he is currently in a Western country US ?
    May be he is so rich and he can afford a private security in US.

    These are important because there were among others young students in the parliament gallery. Also the image of SL in the International Arena or rather among the UN member countries are important too.

    At a time When Mahinda wants UN interference, Karu only went for local investigation and they’ve submitted their report of what exactly happened in parliament yesterday.

    Will UN ask for a copy of the video recording and then appoint DJ as a UN special rep to recommend to UN how UN can consider Mahinda’s request for interference.

    With your all political differences with MR of policies, there is thing to be protected democracy by governance of democracy with security.

    That is most paramount and crux of the matter principle democracy stand of security by treated ruling parties order of democracy.

    This is not an individual issue(MR) ,that is national issues ,Rulers not trap into interest of Terrorist and foreign powers by name of human rights or demobilization nation security by anti- democracies forces .
